Voted Best Music Festival in D.C. by Washington City Paper Readers

The Kingman Island Bluegrass & Folk Festival will return for the 9th time to join the District in celebrating the Year of the Anacostia at this highly-anticipated benefit event.

Headlining an impressive lineup of nearly two dozen bluegrass, folk, and Americana music will be Ganstagrass, Cris Jacobs, and a very exciting showcase, The American Songster Revue (featuring Dom Flemons, Guy Davis, Amythyst Kiah, and more!).
